Today, Thomas picked up and ate a puff! Very exciting. He finally fed himself. I think mostly the puff stuck to his hand because it was covered in drool, but the puff made it into his mouth.

Then, he

  • squealed
  • stuck out his tongue with the puff on it
  • closed his mouth
  • scrunched up his face
  • squealed
  • mashed it around in his mouth
  • spit half of it out
  • squealed

and I can only assume the rest actually made it down the hatch. We gave him the Happy Babies Organic Puffs. I was very excited that he fed himself, and that he was eating something good for him. Obviously it was good for him - "organic" was on the label. Duh.

I'm the gullible consumer that buys "organic" because it says so on the label. And I trust it - and I trust Happy Babies because they are on the Healthy Child, Healthy World website . However, it's very processed. Every little puff has a pretty shape that's exactly the same, it comes in a plastic container (don't freak out, it's BPA free) and it's apple-flavored. But... what is organic? Puffs didn't grow in a garden. They were made in a factory.

But - I'm not going to make home-cooked snacks from vegetables dug up from the farm right outside of Conway SC for Thomas to eat. I want to be all organic but it's damn near impossible. And I want to feed Thomas all-organic but I think that Gerber cooks much better than I do. So, for him, right now - I have two rules:

  1. I have to be able to pronounce all ingredients. Like squash, water. That's simple. No chemicals.
  2. It has to be something that I would eat. Like mac 'n cheese puree... I would feed that to someone I despise, not someone I love. Why would I want to grind up pasta? Ew. No, thank you.

I teeter from trusting companies wouldn't put something on the market unless it was safe... to the extreme opposite fear that "I didn't grow up with that, it could be cancer-causing!!" I get it: the food we eat today is NOT the same as the food we grew up eating. But what is the balance? Just eat organic as much as possible and cross your fingers? Swear off anything except home-picked veggies? Say, "to heck with it" and eat what you can afford? It's going to give me an organxiety attack. Responses requested, por favor.
